Temple Sinai of Massapequa 270 Clocks Blvd Massapequa, NY 11758
About Temple Sinai Temple Sinai was founded in 1958 by former members of the Massapequa Jewish Center. Temple Sinai held its first services at the Massapequa Fire House on Hicksville Road. At that time, religious groups were permitted to use local public school buildings and our religious classes were held at Ames School in Massapequa. Temple Sinai left the firehouse and began to use the Presbyterian Community Church in Massapequa. From there, our congregation moved to Greene Avenue building in Amityville.
Following the Supreme Court ruling that religious and state institutions were to be separate, our congregation left the public Ames School and purchased the property at 270 Clocks Boulevard. Services and religious school were first held in an old Victorian house on the property. In time, our Temple community raised the funds necessary to remove the house and erect the building and sanctuary that is now our spiritual home.
The ongoing mission of Temple Sinai is to provide its members and community a warm and friendly environment in which to worship and learn. We strive to reflect all that Reform Judaism has to offer.
